Republican members of Congress have introduced “The Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act.”
As we first exposed last April, the Wuhan lab received over $600,000 in taxpayer funds via the NIH for dangerous coronavirus experiments that many experts believe caused the pandemic. We also confirmed as recently as yesterday that the lab is still eligible to receive even more taxpayer funds from the NIH. WIV also received funding from DOD and USAID in the past. In February of this year, WCW and the Organic Consumers Association called on the White House to defund WIV.
According to White Coast Waste Project, “The Defund the Wuhan Institute of Virology Act is being led by Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) (who sent this letter to NIH in Feb) and cosponsored by Reps. Brian Mast (R-FL), Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), Diana Harshberger (R-TN), Bill Posey (R-FL), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Tiffany (R-WI), Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Robert Aderholt (R-AL), Paul Gosar (R-AZ), Greg Steube (R-FL), Bob Gibbs (R-OH), Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), and Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ).”Proposed bill to defund Wuhan Institute of Virology | The Most Revolutionary Act
